Share in the excitement and importance of ham radio - from tossing an antenna wire into a tree allowing you to talk to the world, to the importance of ham radio operators in time of disasters with hosts Bob Heil, Gordon West, George Thomas, Don Wilbanks, Valerie Hotzfeld, Amanda Alden, and Dale Puckett. Ham Nation was published by TWIT.tv through the end of 2020 and was released under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial No-Derivatives 4.0 International license.
